Parma complete Pabon signing

Colombian international striker Dorlan Pabon has joined Serie A side Parma on a five-year contract.

The 24-year-old was being heavily linked with a move to Galatasaray, but the Italian club have snapped up the now former Atletico Nacional player.

“He represents an important investment,” stated director general Pietro Leonardi. “In recent times we have looked to improve the potential of the side with permanent signings.”

The player started his career at Envigado, before moving on to Atletico in 2010.

It is believed that he has been signed for an initial €4m, but that fee could rise depending on if bonus clauses are activated.
